Grade: Secondary 1 (High School)
Johnathan, affectionately known as “JJ,” is the boisterous entertainer of the Mission. He is motivated and strives for excellence in everything he does. JJ loves math and science, especially learning about oceans and marine animals, which are often the subjects of his drawings. But it doesn’t stop there! In fact, he likes to draw many aspects of the world around us including people, houses, and trees. His creativity also shines through acting. At Christmas—his favorite holiday—JJ plays one of the wise men in the Mission’s plays during the season. Whatever his ambition or task, JJ has a generous heart and is driven to take care of others. His favorite day of the week is Saturday because he enjoys volunteering at the malnutrition clinic. Hoping to further cultivate his hospitality when he grows up, JJ would like to run a hotel and donate his earnings to the Church and those in need like his role model, Mr. Alain.
In 2018, he helped launch and is an editor of the student newspaper, the Have Faith Daily Times.
